CITGO teams with Condon Oil to raise a grand total of $40,286 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in 2012.
Condon Oil teamed with CITGO Petroleum Corp. and members of the Ripon, Wis., community to raise more than $30,000 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in 2012.
The two companies teamed up for the 13th bi-annual Condon Chairty Golf and Fishing event on June 6, 2012. About 216 golfers and 34 fishing charter boats attended the event, which raised close to $12,000 more than Condon Oil raised in 2010.
“We’ve been hosting this event since 1988, and it is always such a tremendous experience for all of us here at Condon,” said Tanya Winchell, event co-chair at Condon Oil. “We truly appreciate the continued support we receive from CITGO and our community-based supporters.”
This year’s golf and fishing outing also raised $10,000 for the UW Madison Cancer Research Center and select locally based charities. The gifts were donated in honor of Condon Oil’s co-founders Eileen and Kent Bauman, both of whom lost their lives to cancer.
In addition to the golf tournament, Condon Oil participated in the sale of paper MDA Shamrocks at all 33 of its retail locations. This locally funded effort raised $7,286 which led to a grand total of $40,286 raised for MDA in 2012.
“Condon Oil has done such a fantastic job with this bi-annual effort to raise funds and awareness for muscular dystrophy,” said Alan Flagg, general manager of light oils marketing for CITGO. “Supporting the MDA has always been very important to CITGO, and we are so impressed by Condon Oil’s continued dedication to the cause.”
CITGO is committed to giving back to local communities through these efforts. CITGO, based in Houston, is a refiner, transporter and marketer of transportation fuels, lubricants, petrochemicals and other industrial products.
